THE BERKELEY SUITE IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE RETURN OF THE ORIGINAL COSMIC DISCO INNOVATER, THE LEGENDARY DANIELE BALDELLI [COSMIC CLUB / BAIA DEGLI ANGELI]……

“IT WOULDN’T BE MUCH OF A STRETCH TO DECLARE DANIELE BALDELLI THE GREATEST DJ EVER”
(WIRE MAGAZINE)

“THE LEVEL OF PREPARATION FOR HIS LIVE SETS IS THE STUFF OF LEGEND!”
(WONDERLAND MAGAZINE)

“I GOT HOLD OF BALDELLI’S MIXTAPES AND THEY TOTALLY BLEW ME AWAY”
(DJ CLAUDIO COCCOLUTO – SEVEN MAGAZINE)

MEASURED BY THE YEARS OF SERVICE, NOT MANY DJS CAN COMPETE WITH DANIELE BALDELLI. HE STARTED DJING IN 1969 IN HIS HOMETOWN CATTOLICA – A SEASIDE RESORT ON THE ADRIATIC COAST. EIGHT YEARS LATER, HE STOOD IN THE LEGENDARY DJ BOOTH (BUILT INTO A FULLY FUNCTIONAL GLASS LIFT) OF THE SEMINAL DISCOTHEQUE ‘BAIA DEGLI ANGELI’!

“THE BAIA DEGLI ANGELI, IT’S NOT EXAGERRATE TO SAY EVERYTHING STARTED THERE. THE GOLDEN AGE OF DISCO, CLUBBING & GLAMOUR… …THE BAIA – LIKE FIORUCCI’S DREAM COME TRUE – DISPLAYS PLEXIGLASS DANCEFLOORS AND A CRAZY DJ BOOTH INSIDE A LIFT THAT GOES UP AND DOWN ALL NIGHT LONG. THE PEOPLE DANCING ON THE FOUR FLOORS… ….AT BAIA YOU COULD MEET ANY OF HOLLYWOOD’S MOVIE STARS TRANSITING ITALY… ...GRACE JONES IS SO OFTEN A GUEST TO BECOME PRACTICALLY PART OF THE ENVIRONMENT. HOW BEAUTIFUL WAS BAIA!”
(FABIO DE LUCA, JUNE 2005)

AT THE DAWN OF THE ’80S, DANIELE BALDELLI MOVED ON FROM THE ADRIATIC COAST TO LAKE GARDA WHERE HE WAS ENGAGED AT THE CLUB ‘COSMIC’. THERE HE WENT BEYOND DISCO AND PIONEERED A STYLE THAT WOULD SOON BE KNOWN AS “COSMIC” ALL OVER ITALY.

“NEW YORK HAD STUDIO 54 BUT LAZISE ON LAKE GARDA HAD THE ‘COSMIC’ — THE SPACE THEMED DISCOTHEQUE THAT BECAME A CULTURAL PHENOMENON!”

“THE CLUB WAS BUILT FOR 1,000 PEOPLE, BUT OUTSIDE THERE WERE MORE THAN 3,000!”
(DB – RED BULL INTEVIEW)

“…A LIGHTING AND SOUND SYSTEM THAT WAS CERTAINLY SOMETHING NEVER BEFORE SEEN.”

THE INTEREST CREATED ON THE FIRST INAUGURATION EVENING, GATHERED A NUMBER OF PEOPLE SO HIGH THAT THE PARTY HAD TO BE REPEATED FOR THE NEXT FOUR EVENINGS: EACH NIGHT SOLD OUT. VERY SOON THE FAME OF “COSMIC” SPREAD AND WITHIN A FEW MONTHS REACHED THE PROVINCES OF VERONA, BRESCIA AND MANTUA. THE DISCO WITHIN A YEAR BECAME THE MEETING POINT FOR ALL “TRENDS” AND REMAINED SO FROM 1979 TO 1984. IN THE DISCOTEQUE PARKING LOT IT WAS POSSIBLE TO SEE CARS COMING FROM PALERMO, UDINE, NAPLES, TURIN, INNSBRUCK, FLORENCE ETC. ALL OF THE TREND SETTERS OF THE PENINSULA BOOKED A SATURDAY EVENING AT ‘COSMIC’.

HOLDING COURT FROM 1979-84 BALDELLI CREATED FREQUENTLY DARK, CHURNING, HYPNOTIC MIXES THAT WERE DEEPLY PSYCHEDELIC. IF THE LATEST DEPECHE MODE SINGLE DIDN’T SOUND RIGHT AT 45RPM AS INTENDED BALDELLI HAD A SIMPLE WAY OF MAKING IT WORK. “SOMETIMES THINGS SOUND BETTER AT DIFFERENT SPEEDS” HE LAUGHS. “IN ITALY NOBODY UNDERSTOOD THE LYRICS, SO THE VOICE BECAME LIKE MUSIC. SOMETHING WEIRD AND DIFFERENT.”

ALTHOUGH THE COSMIC DISCO MOVEMENT SLOWED DOWN AS THE '80S PROGRESSED, BALDELLI'S REPUTATION AND UNIQUE STYLE ALLOWED HIM TO EXTEND HIS CAREER INTO THE FOLLOWING DECADES AND HIS INFLUENCE CONTINUES TO BE FELT THROUGH THE MAJOR PLAYERS OF THE LEFTFIELD DISCO SCENE – TODD TERJE, PRINS THOMAS, DJ HARVEY & HORSE MEAT DISCO!

THIS PROMISES TO BE A VERY SPECIAL NIGHT INDEED AND A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO CATCH ONE OF THE FEW GENUINE BONAFIDE LEGENDS OF THE DANCE MUSIC SCENE. COME ALONG AND SAMPLE HIS EXTRAORDINARY & UNIQUE DEEJAYING STYLE.

LOCAL LEFTFIELD DISCO MAVERICK BILLY WOODS OF SUPERMAX FAME WILL BE ON HAND TO WARM THINGS UP. PREPARE YOURSELF FOR A NIGHT TO REMEMBER!!!

“THAT’S WHY I OWN 60,000 VINYL RECORDS.” DANIELE BALDELLI
